About 2017 Global Symposium

The Clemson Global Symposium was originally created by a collaboration of recent Clemson Alumni, current Clemson students, faculty, and staff with their eyes on the following mission: to serve as a catalyst in fostering the development of Clemson students as global citizens. The Symposium focuses on two main goals: To foster awareness of cross-cultural understanding through opportunities for overseas service and/or academic and research activities and to encourage engagement of Clemson students in taking on global responsibilities and problem solving in partnership with citizens from other countries. More sessions will be added as they are available.
